Hi, I wanted to say hello and introduce our new puppy Dexter.  He's 12 weeks old today and doing really well.  My wife grew up with Dobermans and we've always had big dogs, but this is our first Dobe together.  So far, it's a lot of work (as it always is with puppies), but we're enjoying him very much.  We're new empty-nesters, having just sent our youngest off to college, so Dex is our new "child" to dote on.

I guess the part that's most challenging is posting his ears properly.  We've read so much about so many alternative ways, but in the end decided to stick with the tried and true tampons.  However, it's a real challenge to get both ears standing straight and parallel.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot here and sharing Dexter's progress as he grows.

Larry

Hey Dexter!! You are so welcome here!! Love your pictures and I think you're going to be a big boy judging from those doberpaws...

We all look forward to watching you grow up and hearing all about your adventures.. You'll fill that 'empty nest ' soon!

Welcome to the Group, Larry!  Dexter is just adorable!!  I love the kissing photo you posted.  Nothing can melt a person's heart (or make a person giggle) more than a puppy kiss.

I also love the name.  If we were to get another dobie, that's probably what we would name him too.
